Well...all of the major sewing is done. All that it left is to stuff, seal, and string it! I have my grosgrain channels/ tieouts sewn on 3 of 4 sides.
Forgive the mess. If my basement wasn't so full of junk, I would have never found the 2 thread injectors that were left there by my grandmother and my mom
Here's a pic of it "hanging" for the first time:
A picture showing the inner shell, and the unsewn, about-to-be-stuffed end:
Diva, since you were asking about baffles, here's what they look like inside the quilt once sewn. You can see how the inner shell forms the top of the tube, the outer shell forms the bottom, and the noseeum forms the sides of the tubes:
And finally, for comparison's sake...here's a pic of my 3/4 length Summer Phoenix hanging above the DIY UQ:
I'm in the home stretch!. Time to break out the backpacking tent, shop-vac, and scale, and start stuffing! Each chamber will be getting 2.1 oz of down. Which is about 20% overstuff. I'm guessing it will weigh about 30 oz when all is said and done, including the suspension. I may have overbuilt it, but it'll be warm, that's for sure. We shall see.
